Joaquin Phoenix will meet Lynne Ramsay for the second time after “A Beautiful Day” for the next film “Polaris”. The actor will also be associated for the fourth time with his companion, the very talented Rooney Mara.
Polaris, the new project of Lynne Ramsay
Lynne Ramsay made an impression in 2011 with her third feature film, We Need to Talk about Kevin. It took six years to find her with A Beautiful Day for such a strong new proposition. Presented at the Cannes Film Festival in 2017, the film allowed Joaquin phoenix to take home the prize for male interpretation. Suffice to say that a new collaboration between the filmmaker and the actor has something to dream of. But even more if the duo becomes a trio with the addition of Rooney mara. A dream that should come true after Comingsoon (via El Espanol) with Polaris, the filmmaker’s next project.
This will be a new joint production for the couple Phoenix / Mara, after Her, Mary Magdalene and Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot.
A superb duo
At the moment, there is no further information on what will be Polaris. The director took advantage of her presence at Cinema Jove, the international film festival in Valencia, to simply announce this project with the two performers. She also wanted to make tribute to joaquin phoenix which she considers as the “best actor“ that she was able to meet. For her, Joaquin Phoenix is ”crazy” but “everything he does has a reason“. Indeed, the actor is known for give oneself entirely in one’s roles. The latest example would be its interpretation in Joker which won him the Oscar for Best Actor, but we should not forget his performances in Inherent Vice, The Master or even under the direction of James Gray.
For his part, Rooney Mara is no slouch. Long awaited in the next Guillermo del Toro, Nightmare alley, she has to her credit several beautiful roles as in Song to song, A Ghost Story or Carol, without forgetting the film which revealed it to the general public: Millennium.
You will have to wait before knowing more about Polaris. The project is still in its early stages, but these three names are enough to attract attention.
